You may have previously seen the History Board at the Pond (prior to the works taking place it was near the jetty at Boathouse Corner, as above).
It’s been very popular with visitors and many have been surprised by the interesting stories related to Fleet Pond.
Fleet Pond Society have recently produced an attractive pamphlet (sample page above) that goes into this history in a bit more detail.
It’s a very interesting read and can be downloaded here (22.5 MB).
The impressive artwork was produced by a local freelance illustrator, Andy Johnson.
